What’s Your Excuse?

no excuses 2015 logoDon’t worry about age (or youth) slowing you down when you run Sacramento’s original age-graded 5 Km race.

The No Excuses 5K, threading through the tree-lined Land Park course, lets you relive your youthful glory on a fast, flat course.

Davis’s Joannie Siegler, 58, ran a 20:20 to beat all comers with an age-graded 14:35. Coming in next, in age-graded times, was last year’s champion Mo Bartley, 60, of Auburn, whose 20:58 age -graded to 14:41.

Finishing third in the age graded race was  Sacramento’s Gary Blanco, 47, whose 16:26(!) age-graded to 14:48.

If we look at the non-age-graded times, which we cannot help doing, we see that Garrett Seawell, 23 of Roseville, was the first finisher in a legitimately speedy time of 15:13.

There has been a lot of racing going on around here! With all the rain and mud we’ve been slogging through, it’s hard to believe that this is the beginning of the summer, short-distance race season–but it is.

At Sunday’s Kaiser Permanente Women’s Fitness Festival 5K, Caroline Kirui, of Auburn (by way of Kenya), smoked all comers with a 16:26. This was surely one of the fastest women’s 5K times we’ve seen in town lately.

Rounding out the rest of the top-three were two of Sacramento’s top masters talents–Mary Coordt, of Elk Grove, was the second finisher in 17:45, and Kirsten Schneider, of Sacramento, was third in 18:24.
